Makar Sanskranti Importance
Do you know that twelve Sankranti fall in a year? Sun is the lord of all nine planets, and when Sun, with its conventional pace, moves from one zodiac to another, we call this occasion ‘Sankranti’. But why from among all the twelve Sankranti, Makar Sankranti is major?
This festival celebrates the entry of the Sun into the Capricorn zodiac, and it also marks the end of the winters, with Sun becoming Uttarayan 2022. From the day of this festival, the days become longer and warmer and, the nights become shorter.
Planet Saturn rules Capricorn, and on the day of Makar Sankranti, father Sun enters into the zodiac of his son Saturn. We also consider this day significant because it is the day of reconciliation of father and son. They reunite as a happy and loving family, leaving behind their rivalry.
